PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The National Weather Service says the potential for freezing rain overnight could cause problems for commuters from the Philadelphia area northward to New York City and Boston.

NWS meteorologist Greg Heavener says freezing rain is expected overnight into Monday, following much the same path as Sunday's storm.

That forecast comes after a powerful storm that crept across the country dropped snow, freezing rain and sleet on the Mid-Atlantic region Sunday. The surprisingly strong snowstorm turned NFL playing fields in Pennsylvania into winter wonderlands and dumped a foot of snow in Delaware.

Heavener says the Monday morning commute "in the Philadelphia area and north, to northern New Jersey and New York will likely be disrupted by freezing rain." He said the timing of the storm is still suspect.
